London-based animal welfare charity, Mayhew, is holding a month of fundraising fun in May to continue their vital, life-saving work to help abandoned, neglected and vulnerable cats and dogs, as well as owners in need, both in the UK and overseas.
During Month of Mayhew, you can be as creative as you like in how you fundraise for the animal welfare charity; from holding a cake sale and adding a dog or cat-themed twist, to running a marathon to hosting a dinner party dressed all in purple (Mayhew’s colour, of course!).
Mayhew’s CEO, Caroline Yates, said: “The work we do just wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our supporters who choose to help us in whichever way they can. We can’t wait to see the different ways our supporters will be fundraising for us this month!
“All the money raised from Month of Mayhew will go towards us helping more dogs and cats escape a life of cruelty, neglect and abandonment in the UK and overseas.”
Follow these easy steps to take part:
1) Pick a way to fundraise

Mayhew can send you everything you need to ensure your fundraising goes well, including lots more fundraising tips and ideas, banners, flags, balloons and a collection box.
3) Make it Mayhew
Why not add to the fun by making your event dog or cat themed and ‘making it Mayhew’? You could wear cat or dog ear headbands or bake dog or cat shaped cakes – the options are endless! You could even make your colour-theme purple to fit in with Mayhew’s brand.
4) Share your success!
